blooming lotus.



"When you want to treat your body's largest organ to something yummy, remember this: what you put on it is as important as what you put in it. Your skin is a sponge. It drinks up whatever you offer it. So choose pure plant medicine over petrochemicals, organic love over toxic soup. Choose organic herbs, pure essential oils, and crystal infusions. Choose Blooming Lotus: all organic, pure positive energy"


Jen Denslow, the woman behind Blooming Lotus, spends her days blending essential oils from the heart of Kansas City's busy art district with her two year old playing on the floor nearby and friendly faces from the nearby market stopping in to say hello. Every batch of products is made with prayer and intention and the products are "pure bliss".

She is a lot like every other mother. Trying to find balance between family, work and play. We all know life can be challenging but Jen believes in doing what you love, and she's making it work. Quite well I might add.

What Jen loves are great body care products and she's on a mission to make them. Not the "natural" and "organic" brands used for marketing buzz, but authentically clean body care, it is the way of life at Blooming Lotus.



If you have ever had a child with a goose egg on their forehead you know how terrible it can make you feel as a mother. The answer I learned from a friend was in the form of arnica. Blooming Lotus's Bruise and Brawn Salve soothes bruises (literally) sore muscles and achy joints. It's made with organic arnica, organic St. John's wort in organic olive oil, organic hemp oil, organic coconut oil, organic beeswax, essential oils, & love. As a mother this will become your go-to product. It's become mine.



Soulshine Body Shampoo is a refreshing way to start your morning. I look forward to it daily. It brightens my mood and leaves me feeling ready for the day. Also available in Fairy Fresh, Groundation and Sublime scents.



Blooming Lotus also has a large assortment of handcrafted soaps. Mixing blends of organic ingredients they are scented with interesting combinations that "sing of joy and happiness".

It's clear Blooming Lotus is all about sharing the "love". So they are hoping to pass some of that along to our readers. They are offering a collection of body shampoos in their four signature scents (a $60 value) for giveaway to one Tangled and True reader.

To everyone else, while browsing their assortment of apothercary, aromatherapy and bath & body products Blooming Lotus is offering all Tangled and True readers 20% off your entire purchase simply use code truegreen at checkout.
